5 Best Sportbike Modifications

  1. Good Tires
  2. Stainless Brake lines and aftermarket brake pads
  3. Suspension Springs  (Suspension sag and dampening settings professionally adjusted can be a HUGE improvement)
  4. Suspension Rebuild and Re-valve
  5. Rear Shock

So why did I choose these 5?  Why not a fresh air delete, pipe, and PC5?  Why not cams and bumped compression?  Getting more power is fine for the straight line guys and super-bike racers that already have suspension upgrades. But when your an amateur just starting, carving canyons, doing track days, or future road racer, more power is lower on the needs list than brake feel, cornering control, and traction.  Your money is better spent on traction, and if your a track day beginner, spending money on quality track day tires, a suspension baseline setup/adjustment, track days, riding classes, and actual track saddle time and instruction is more beneficial than 10 or 20 more HP that you would receive from a $1k pipe and ECU modification.  Eventually if you do enough track days, the trick brake and suspension parts will come as needed.

Fast bikes are fast on the straights. Fast riders are fast through the corners.

Riding motorcycles and wrenching since my preteen years, I have moved from motocross to street bikes. Being a teen back in those days it was tough to get me off of the bike. Now days even though I am very busy being a dad I still have my weekends and go to the track to race and on occasion will do a track day or two.
